Springtime in Chicago makes you forget winter's misery.

I've yet to drive the downtown streets, and don't plan to anytime soon, thanks to all the options there are to get around Chicago. I walked more than 8 miles Saturday, took a bus from the Museum Campus to Union Station, plus rode the train back to the 'burbs. There's also Divvy bikes, the El, and cabs. And my new favorite: Chicago Water Taxi.
Until last year, I didn't even know there were water taxis. They. Are. Awesome. If you ever visit Chicago in the warm-weather months, try to take a water taxi instead of a regular cab if you can. The views are incredible. Plus: you're on a boat! Chicago Water Taxi has stops at Ogilvie/Union, LaSalle/Clark, the Magnificent Mile, North Avenue, and Chinatown on the weekdays and weekends.

-- see how the opening in the clouds mimics the architectural shape?
Of course there will be pictures.
